I know the three or four of you who read this blog might be getting sick of compost pile posts, but too bad, here's another one. We've had a lot of rain over the past couple days - it basically started right after I turned the pile over on Friday and hasn't stopped since. So I was anxious to see how the pile faired.

I also took a few shots of the peppers - it's nice to see something green on the blog again. First up is the habanero. No, I haven't eaten any of these. I did give my neighbor one, and I'll take his word for it that they are very hot. These started turning orange a couple weeks ago:
